. jim sciutto, thank you. let's bring in senior political correspondent jon karl who's been all over this story since the beginning. we've got the boehner and reid plan. neither of these things can pass so what, if anything, is being done to craft some sort of compromise? >> reporter: well, there are, as you heard jim mention quiet negotiations going on between harry reid and mitch mcconnell. mitch mcconnell has been on the phone several times with vice president biden over the last several days trying to find one last-ditch effort to get what everybody knows needs to happen, dada that is something that has bipartisan support. i got to tell you, though, the atmosphere is so poisoned here, the question is once they get that agreement, can they pass it. >> well, let me pick up on it. there's been so much tough talk, even trash talk. i wonder if there is another wiggle room rhetorically for the hard-liners on either side to back down. >> reporter: i think -- maybe not the hard-liners but i think there is wiggle room. if you look at those two bills you have there, there is incredible com

that to happen. >> with that let me bring in our team. jake tapper, jon karl on capitol hill. jon, given the deadlock, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell says he doesn't think a deal can be reached so calm up with a last-ditch fallback. >> reporter: last choice option, only if the talks completely collapse. it's complicated but the bottom line is, it would give the president the authority on his own to gradually raise that debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion between now and the election. the political burden is all the president's. he can do it without spending cuts and even in the face of opposition from the majority in congress. i talked to a lot of republicans in the house, rank and file, who say it's not acceptable. they want real spending cut, a lot of them and nothing else. >> there's no guarantee of spending cuts even though it would avoid tax increases. any openness in the white house to that and where do they think the talks are right now? are they as pessimistic as mr. mcconnell? >> reporter: well, mcconnell's deal sent two signals to the white house, one, good news to them
. paul, what do you have? >> reporter: let's talk -- start with jon huntsman. i guess call it 2.0. remember, he jumped into the race for the white house about a month or two ago? a lot of fan fare but not rising in the polls. in fact, not doing much at all in the polls. what do you do? i guess you shake things up if that is the case. changes campaign manager last week. now a newer maybe tougher jon huntsman on the campaign trill. heard it yesterday in new hampshire. aggressive going after president obama and aggressive going after mitt romney who is considered i guess right now in the early stages of this race the front-runner for the gop nomination. campaign aides to huntsman say expect to hear more of that. >>> george pataki, i guess we have to talk about him. three terms in the '90s and last decade as well as governor of new york. he is in new hampshire today and tomorrow. last week, in iowa. the first two states in the presidential primary and caucus calendars calendar. does this mean he is thinking about running for the white house? yeah, an adviser to him, a spokesman says
in his district. in fact, the first one's going to be august 7th with jon huntsman. a little later in the month, august 25th, michele bachmann will appear. he says he's going to have all the questions come from the audience, they'll pick them out, whatever the question is, he will ask the candidate. this is pretty interesting, because on labor day, we'll see senator jim demint, south carolina senator, he's holding a similar type of forum. in the past it's been the media, been us, we've done a good job of it, but now the lawmakers want to get involved as well. >> i'm sure they do. mark, i want to ask you to stick around. this is rare. no real news value to this story, but this video has gone viral and we have to share this video of two dogs, one starts with a fight with his friend, then you see that? he gets bitten, then boom, this dog actually plays dead, then he gets up, does it again. you've got to watch this carefully. scuffle, bitten on the neck, boom, goes down, plays dead. then looks, is he still here? raises his head. isn't that hilarious? >> he deserves an oscar. good lord.
every day. you've been watching. you see how we do it. but it's nothing like jon stewart. >> the president continued, "i have shown enormous willingness to compromise." >> mr. obama then left, saying, "i'll see you tomorrow." >> oh, [ bleep ]! oh, no, he didn't. the president all stormed out and was like, okay, tomorrow then. [ laughter ] what? that's not storming out. that's ending a meeting by scheduling the next meeting. >> political buzz is your rapid-fire look at the hottest political topics of the day. three questions, 20 seconds on the clock. and playing today, democratic national committee member robert zimmerman. cnn contributor and independent john avlon. and republican strategist and columnist for the "hill" newspaper sherry jacobus. first question, guys, while republicans in washington look like they're moving closer to a deal, sarah palin is digging in, advising now is not the time to retreat, it's the time to reload and reload with reality. okay. who's right? sherry? >> you know, i'm with her on this one. this isn't supposed to be easy. i think it should be
now. for better or worse, we'll start talking about mitt romney and jon huntsman and the mormon church, just as we talked about president obama and what church he went to. >> thank you for joining in on the qufrconversation. >> you bet. >>> taking a trup to l.a. they even raised the money they needed until they saw the bill for the airline fees. would you like to have a look at a map, my lad? ah, why not? shall we check on the status of your knighthood? yes. again? yes, again, please! thank you. with my digital manservant, i'll never be homesick again. would you like me to put the kettle on, sir? no, i'd like you to get rid of that ostrich. it's been here a month.

leader represented house republicans, jon kyl for senate republicans, and that vice president. they have been talking about all lot of cuts, both to discretionary and non- discretionary spending, but there the problem is that it does not seem to add at to what they would need to meet the president's requirements to get the country through the next election. that would be somewhere in the area of $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. john boehner has made it clear that for any increase in the debt ceiling, they will not need more than a one-one increased ratio. quite frankly the democrats have not agreed to that level of cuts. it looks like they will go back today, scour potential areas of saying that they have talked about, and see how much they can agree to and go from there. agree to and go from there. host: in your article from yesterday's with the headline " boehner tells conference big deal no longer operative," you said that there were criticisms for the grand bargain. he pays -- he faced opposition from eric cantor. they presented a united front before the gop conference whi
